Free agent Knowshon Moreno said he would like to play for the Dolphins.
According to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson, the Dolphins aren't interested. Moreno last played in the NFL in 2014 with Miami when he blew out his knee after three games. Complications in his recovery stalled his rehab, but he's recently said he'd like to play again. Moreno turns 29 next month. Jun 3 - 9:43 AM

Free agent Knowshon Moreno says he plans to continue his playing career in 2016.

NBC Denver's Mike Klis reported earlier this month that Moreno is "80 percent done" mentally after missing all of 2015 with a torn ACL, but Moreno has tweeted he plans to be "back on the field." Moreno is only 29 (in July), but injury woes have limited him to 34 appearances over the past five years. The odds are against him notching a regular season carry.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis suggested free agent RB Knowshon Moreno's (knee) career is all but over.

Moreno does not turn 29 until July, but Klis said he mentally is "80 percent done" with football after taking off last season to rehab an ACL tear. Despite his age, Moreno's knees were a concern long before the ACL injury, with Klis reporting they were "virtually bone on bone" while playing for the Broncos in 2013. The condition of his knees explains why he received very little free agent interest after leaving Denver and why he appears content to end his NFL career. Klis does say Moreno is "staying in great shape just in case," but it is likely he has played his last snap.

According to Mike Jurecki of XTRA Phoenix, free agent Knowshon Moreno will not play football in 2015.

Per Jurecki, the reason for Moreno's absence from football will take place because Knowshon's "knee isn't right." Moreno is only 28 years old and was effective when healthy last season, but tore his ACL in Week 6. There hasn't been a Rotoworld blurb on Moreno since late March, so we now find out why.

Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey said he hasn't ruled out re-signing free agent Knowshon Moreno.

Moreno tore his ACL in Week 6 and is still rehabbing. Prior to getting hurt, Moreno rushed 31 times for 148 yards (4.8 YPC) and one TD across three games. The Dolphins want a power complement to Lamar Miller, preferably one who can pass protect. Moreno is one of the best in that area.

ESPN's James Walker doesn't expect Miami to bring back free agent Knowshon Moreno.

Coming off his injury-filled 2014, the Dolphins plan to move on from Moreno. He settled for a one-year deal last offseason and will likely struggle to find guaranteed offers. Moreno is four months removed from ACL surgery.

Dolphins placed RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Moreno sustained an ACL tear during Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Packers, although we didn't see it and the Dolphins made no mention of it. His first season in Miami ends with 31 carries for 148 yards and one touchdown, badly hampered by an offseason knee scope and a Week 2 elbow injury. Moreno will enter free agency again this offseason, this time at 27 years old with even more injury concerns than last year when he settled for a one-year, $3M deal from the Dolphins. He'll find scant interest. Lamar Miller, who has been playing at a very high level over the last month, is locked and loaded as Miami's feature back the rest of the way.
Tue, Oct 14, 2014 08:43:00 AM

Knowshon Moreno rushed six times for 10 yards and caught one pass for eight yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Packers.

Back from his elbow injury, Moreno rotated series-by-series with Lamar Miller in the first half. However, he got stuffed on three straight goal-line chances and looked a bit sluggish compared to the quick Miller. In the second half, Moreno barely played as Miller starred. There's going to be some week-to-week competition for carries in this RBBC, but Moreno is second in line heading to a Week 7 game at Chicago.

Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is active for Week 6 against the Packers.

The Miami Herald estimates Moreno will be ticketed for approximately 8-10 carries in his first game since Week 2. Moreno has had trouble adjusting to the bulky brace he's being forced to wear on his elbow. Lamar Miller will start, but Moreno could surpass 8-10 totes if he looks good early.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 11:32:00 AM

Knowshon Moreno is scheduled for approximately 8-10 carries against the Packers in his return from a dislocated elbow.

Moreno practiced on only a limited basis all week, as he's had some difficulty trying to get used to the bulky brace supporting his elbow. The 8-10 carries expectation signals the Dolphins will use an even timeshare between Moreno and Lamar Miller, with Moreno's role likely growing should be prove he can play effectively with the brace. Consider Moreno a high-risk FLEX option.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 09:54:00 AM

Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is listed as probable for Week 6 versus Green Bay.

It's somewhat notable that Moreno was "limited" in Friday's practice. As recently as Thursday, Moreno was having problems trying to practice with a bulky brace on his previously dislocated elbow. It's impossible to say at this point whether Moreno will get a lead back's workload against the Packers, or if he'll share carries evenly with Lamar Miller, or if he'll only be a bit player off the bench. He's a high-risk flex option in Week 6.
Fri, Oct 10, 2014 03:50:00 PM

Speaking Thursday, Knowshon Moreno (elbow) hinted his Week 6 status remains up in the air.

He was officially "limited" in Thursday's practice. Speaking with ESPN's James Walker, Moreno intimated that his availability could come down to his comfort with wearing an elbow brace. Asked what the issues with the brace were, Moreno responded "everything." It's possible Moreno's status could come down to a game-time decision. The situation will be updated no later than Friday.
Thu, Oct 9, 2014 02:49:00 PM

Knowshon Moreno (elbow) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

He's on the field with a brace protecting his dislocated elbow. Signs continue to point to Moreno suiting up this week in a plus matchup against the Packers. It's still to be determined how carries will be split between Moreno and Lamar Miller. But based on the way the Dolphins used Miller in Moreno's absence, it suggests they view him merely as a change-of-pace back with Moreno as the lead dog.
Wed, Oct 8, 2014 12:32:00 PM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero believes Knowshon Moreno (elbow) was "being quirky" when he suggested last week he was four weeks away from returning.

"That was always worst case," wrote Salguero. Salguero believes the Dolphins' decision to waive backup RB Orleans Darkwa on Monday indicates they "obviously feel confident" Moreno will be available for Week 6 against the Packers. Moreno should have been stashed to this point, but he's now a must-add wherever he was let go. When healthy, the Dolphins have shown more fondness for Moreno as a feature runner, utilizing Lamar Miller as a change-of-pace back. Miami also suddenly has put together one of the better offensive lines in the league. C/RG Mike Pouncey will return from his hip injury this week.
Mon, Oct 6, 2014 05:27:00 PM

Knowshon Moreno (elbow) practiced in Monday's informal session, and "hopes" to return for Sunday's game against the Packers.

This, after Moreno said last week that he would "probably" be sidelined four more weeks. According to reporter Armando Salguero, "no final determination" has been made on Moreno's Week 6 status. It's extremely hard to believe he'd be ready to play after last week's statement, but it's obviously a situation to monitor. We'll get our first real clue as to Moreno's status when the Dolphins issue their first official injury report on Wednesday.
